Kudos for the brave reporters covering Hurricane Irene

I became quite dismayed on reading Frank O'Keefe's letter complaining about the reporters covering Hurricane Irene ("Enough about weather," Sept. 1). He derides their reports of siding being blown away from people's homes.

These reporters were out in the thick of the disaster braving wind, rain and cold for hours on end. What did he expect them to report — the crisis in the Middle East, the Orioles' scores or Kim Kardashian's $6 million wedding? Those were all covered elsewhere.

The brave, courageous weather reporters were out there to cover Hurricane Irene and they all deserve only kudos for going beyond the call of duty.
